Environmental partners are the premier stewards of the exceptional value streams within the
The health of our economy depends on the health of our waters.
Unlike Flint, Michigan and other cities and states with water quality problems, in the Poconos we are blessed with abundant, pure, fresh, drinkable water. Our creeks and streams – and the natural forests they depend on – are the beautiful backdrop of daily life and are essential to a healthy economy and lifestyle. Our geographic region is home to 80% of Pennsylvania’s classified exceptional value streams, right where you live, work and play.
Your stewardship sustains the work of the BWA, as we work to keep water safe to begin with – a much cheaper, far more effective approach than costly clean-ups following careless development.
“Water is the most critical resource issue of our lifetime and our children’s lifetime. The health of our waters is the principal measure of how we live on the land.” – Luna Leopold
